 Be WARNED there IS some very GRAPHIC TESTIMONY  concerning  one couples trip to Saudi Arabia and their visit to the Haj.  I am in no position to verify or discount the specifics of this testimony other than offer it up as it stands.  IF EASILY  OFFENDED  DO NOT CONTINUE FURTHER!!!!

The posting of this article does not mean the author of this web site agrees with everything written.

Samir Ahmad and his wife Shadia Ahmad arrived at Jeddah international airport after very long trip from Canada to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The first thing that caught their attention was the masses of passengers. Over two million Muslims from all over the word arrive every year in Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj rituals. It was impossible for the person to move one step in that crowded arrival hall without touching or being touched by a stranger. Even as a woman Shadia could not prevent the male passengers from touching her body and violating her privacy. Many times, she felt the hands of male passengers purposely touching her chest, backside, and the area around her privates. The only thing she could do was to keep pushing away those male hands and protect her body as much as she could. Sometimes, she felt a male pushing himself on her backside until she could feel his male organ rubbing itself on her body. To stop herself from being touched in that improper manner she requested her husband to protect her back. However, whenever her husband walked behind her she exposed her body from front and male hands would keep touching and feeling her breasts. Finally, she concluded that she could do nothing to stop those evil men from forcing themselves on her body. It took them a couple of hours to emerge out of that sea of passengers and climb into a crowded bus. Fortunately, in the bus Shadia found a seat and sat between two women. As soon as she sat she felt her cloths from behind became wet. She put her hand and felt the liquid that was smearing her hajab. She was shocked when she found a man’s semen on her cloths.

The bus took them to the place where the rituals of the Islamic Hajj would begin on the same day of their arrival. As soon as they emerged out of the bus they found themselves in more crowded place than the arrival hall at the airport. They could hardly move one step without pushing and forcing themselves through the masses of the pilgrims. There were no separated places for men and women. Males and females were mixing freely and there were no restrictions for their movements. Even the washrooms were meant for both sexes. Every woman was wearing hajab and her face and hands were exposed. In fact women were not allowed to do the Hajj rituals while their faces were covered by niqabs. Men were hardly covering their bodies. Their upper parts were exposed and they were wearing white clothes known as Ihrams. The male pilgrims were not allowed to wear any underwear. Shadia was shocked when she saw men were dressed up in those semi-naked garments.

Once again Shadia found herself facing those annoying sexual harassments by the male pilgrims. However, this time the harassments were more serious than before. Shadia regretted that she came to that country. While she was in Canada she heard many things about the segregation of males and fameless in Saudi Arabia. However, her first day in the holy land of the Muslims refuted those claims. While she was studying about the Hajj she learned that it was a pagan religious practice and the Arab pagans practiced it hundreds of years before the coming of Islam. It had nothing to do with Judaism and Christianity. It was called Hak (rubbing of the body). Pagan women used to rub their bodies on the Ka’bah and apply their menses blood on the Black Stone to increase their fertility. Men used to do the rituals while they were bare-naked. Islam incorporated the pagan rituals of the Hajj with slight changes. However, the Hajj was a kind of temple prostitution. Women offered themselves to men as part of their pagan worship of their many idols – male gods and female goddesses. The Black Stone was considered the corner stone of that immoral temple’s prostitutes. Although, Islam removed the idols from the pagan temple still the Black Stone was spared and the immoral mixing between men and women remained the same.

An Egyptian scholar said that the Black Stone was in a shape of a woman’s vagina. In those days the pagans worshipped the private parts of the female and that why women used to apply the blood of their menses on the vagina-like stone. Today a Muslim female might not be able to reach the stone due to the crowd but she was required to point her right hand from far towards it. However, the Muslim man had to kiss the Black Stone at least once during his seven circling around the Ka’bah. The kissing of the stone had no spiritual significance but Muslim men do it because the prophet Muhammad used to kiss it whenever he performed his Hajj. The second caliph Umar Ibn Al-Khattab said while he was kissing the Black Stone, “I know you are just stone and can do no good or bad to me but I am kissing you because I saw the messenger of Allah kissing you”. Umar might not know why the prophet Muhammad had kissed the stone but for the pagans the kissing of the Black Stone was a form of worshiping the woman’s vagina. Muslim men today are continuing that pagan worship of the female private organ. The Hajj rituals began with the Ka’bah but continued in other places. Each pilgrim male/female walks counter-clockwise seven times about the Ka’bah, the cube-shaped building which acts as the Muslim direction of prayer, runs back and forth between the hills of Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, drinks from the Zamzam Well, goes to the plains of Mount Arafat to stand in vigil, and throws stones in a ritual Stoning of the Devil, symbolizing stoning Satan. Those rituals had to be completed in five days – starting on the 8th and ending on the 12th day of the lunar month of Dhul- Hijjah (i.e. The Month of Hajj).

During those five days Shadia went through so many sexual harassments. She was touched and fondled by at least hundred men. She could not believe that those Muslim men came over there to perform a religious obligation. Young women were not so many over the place and hence she became a target of physical harassment everywhere she went. She and her husband quarrelled many times with those evil males who made her the object of their sexual fantasy. Those who could not reach her physically kept staring at her as if she was walking bare naked in that crowded place. Therefore, Shadia had to endure a lot during those five days of performing those satanic rituals. Unfortunately, what she came to see and study she was not able to find or learn. She came to see how Saudi women were treated in that male dominated country. However, what she saw and experienced was more than what a person could expect to see in a bar or nightclub.

While the pilgrims were encircling the Ka’bah Shadia and her husband felt great heaviness in their chests and almost suffocated from the demonic presence of the unseeing evil forces. No one could convince them that that heaviness was not due to the satanic forces that controlling the hearts and minds of those pilgrims. Every place they went and during every ritual they witnessed that heaviness continued in their hearts. When the pilgrims went to stone the devil Shadia had unbearable headache. She was compelled to ask her husband to lay his hand on her head and pray for her relief from that heavy panging inside her head. On that day Shadia thought the devil would kill her for daring to step in his territory. Sami too fell sick and began to experience nausea. It was nothing short of a miracle when those five days passed without any of the couple being suffocated to death during those unholy and satanic rituals of the pagan Hajj.     

In spite of the uncountable problems that Shadia experienced during those five hellish days still she was able to talk to so many Muslim women from various countries. She pretended that she was a new convert to Islam and she was working on an academic research in which she wanted to answer the critique of non-Muslims in the West. She prepared a set of questions that she asked to every Muslim woman she talked to. To her amazement almost all the Muslim women she interviewed gave similar answers to her questions. All of them denied that they were abused by their fathers when they were living under their authorities or by their husbands after they got married to them and that Islam honoured the women. Inass discussed with them some anti-feminine practices such as polygamy, child-marriage, female genital mutilation, liability of the wife to be divorced and her inability to divorce her husband, custody of children after divorce goes to the father, inability of some women to study or work, and wife-beating. The women collectively told Inaas that they do not see anything wrong with those practices as long as they are justified by the Qur’an and the Sunna of the prophet Muhammad.

Not every place in Saudi Arabia is considered to be the Muslim holy land. Makkah, Medina, and other same towns are called Arad al-Hijaz (i.e. the land of Hajj). Non-Muslim foreigners were allowed to visit any city in the kingdom except that land of Hajj. If a non-Muslim is caught in that forbidden area he would be executed by the authority. Muslims believed that if non-Muslim known as infidel pretends to be a Muslim and goes inside that holy land he would be exposed by Allah. There were stories told by Muslims all over the Muslim countries of infidels who pretended to be Muslims and went near the house of Allah (i.e. Ka’bah). As soon as they stepped inside that holy ground they began to shake, scream, and fell down on the ground and rolled around like epileptic people. Then, those people were arrested and interrogated. They admitted that they were not Muslims but pretenders. Shortly, after their confessions some of them got stoned to death and others beheaded. Another story attached to the house of Allah was that the first man who landed on the moon heard the call for prayer that shouted five times in the day from the mosque of the Ka’bah. Millions of Muslims believed such a false claim of the Muezzin’s voice being heard in the moon

As this testimony is a very specific testimony which I would be unable to take further, any questions in this respect should be posted to the author of the article Dr Thomas Ahmad at or

  1. Reliance of the Traveller
    Revised Edition
    The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law ‘Umdat al-Salik
    by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri (d. 769/1368) in Arabic with
    Facing English Text, Commentary, and Appendices
    Edited and Translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller

    w37.0 THE UNLAWFULNESS OF MASTURBATION (from i1.18(9))
    w37.1 (N:) Masturbation with one’s own hand is unlawful. Imam Shafi’i (Allah
    be well pleased with him) was asked in connection with masturbation about the
    word of Allah Most High:

    “…..those who guard their private parts, save from their wives or [bondwomen] whom their right hands own, for these are not blameworthy.

    But whoever seeks beyond that, those are the transgressors” (Koran 23:5-7), and said that these Koranic verses restrict permissible sex to what is mentioned in them, since the last verse denies that anything besides this is lawful.

    “If a man makes a hole in a watermelon, or a piece of dough, or a leather skin, or a statue, and has sex with it, then this is the same as what we have said about other types of masturbation [i.e., that it is halaal in the same circumstances given before, such as being on a journey].
    In fact, it is easier than masturbating with one’s hand”.
    “If a woman does not have a husband, and her lust becomes strong, then some of our scholars say: It is permissible for the woman to take an akranbij, which is a piece of leather worked until it becomes shaped like a penis, and insert it in herself. She may also use a cucumber”.
    Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129
    A Muslim Shia website notes:
    “Maybe this is another reason why ‘Umar the Khalifa never went on jihad: somebody had to stay behind and organize the cucumber distribution.”
    Companions of Muhammad masturbated during Jihad

    “If a man is torn between continued desire or releasing it, and if this man does not have a wife or he has a slave-girl but he does not marry, then if a man is overwhelmed by desire, and he fears that he will suffer because of this (someone like a prisoner, or a traveller, or a pauper), then it is permissible for him to masturbate, and Ahmad (ibn Hanbal) is explicit on this.
    2. Furthermore, it is narrated that the Companions of the Prophet (s) used to masturbate while they were on military expeditions or travelling”.

    Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129
    Muttaqi (God-fearing) monkeys

    Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
    Sahih Bukhari 5:58:188


    Ruling on masturbation and how to cure the problem
    – 329
    I have a question which I am shy to ask but another sister who has come to Islam recently wants an answer to and I do not have an answer (with dilals from the Qur’an and Sunnah). I hope you can help and I hope Allah will for give me if it is inappropriate but as Muslims we should never be shy in seeking knowledge. Her question was “Is it permissible in Islam to masturbate?”.
    May Allah increase us all in knowledge.
    Praise be to Allaah.

    Masturbation (for both men and women) is haraam (forbidden) in Islam based on the following evidence:

    First from the Qur’aan:

    Imam Shafi’i stated that masturbation is forbidden based on the following verses from the Qur’aan (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts). Except from their wives or (the captives and slaves) that their right hands possess, – for them, they are free from blame. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors.” 23.5-7

    Here the verses are clear in forbidding all illegal sexual acts (including masturbation) except for the wives or that their right hand possess. And whoever seeks beyond that is the transgressor.




    Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage

    Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus.

    Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-‘azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women;

    and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.
    So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?

    So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.



    Al-‘Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-‘Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.
    Practiced during Muhammad’s lifetime
    Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .
    Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135
    Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.
    Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136
    When RAPING your captive, it’s better if you do not pull out at the end
    Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.”

    Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432

    Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”
    Sahih Bukhari 3:46:718

    We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. ………
    We asked (him) about it and he said, “It is better for you not to PULL OUT, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist.”
    Sahih Bukhari 5:59:459

    Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured females and wanted sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interruptus. He said, “It is better that you leave it in, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Qaza’a said, “I heard Abu Sa’id saying that the Prophet said, ‘No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it.”
    Sahih Bukhari 9:93:506

    Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah’s Apostle about it and he said, “Do you really do that?” repeating the question thrice, “There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection.”
    Sahih Bukhari 7:62:137

    Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That while he was sitting with the Prophet a man from the Ansar came and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get slave girls from the war captives and we love property; what do you think about coitus interruptus?” Allah’s Apostle said, “Do you do that? It is better for you not to pull out, for there is no soul which Allah has ordained to come into existence but will be created.”
    Sahih Bukhari 8:77:600
    Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-‘azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.
    Sahih Muslim 8:3371, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3372
    Yahya related to me from Malik from Rabia ibn Abi Abd ar-Rahman from Muhammad ibn Yahya ibn Habban that Ibn Muhayriz said, “I went into the mosque and saw Abu Said al-Khudri and so I sat by him and asked him about coitus interruptus. Abu Said al-Khudri said, ‘We went out with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, on the expedition to the Banu al-Mustaliq. We took some Arabs prisoner, and we desired the women as celibacy was hard for us. We wanted the ransom, so we wanted to practise coitus interruptus. We said, ‘Shall we practise coitus interruptus while the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is among us before we ask him?’ We asked him about that and he said, ‘You don’t have to not do it. There is no self which is to come into existence up to the Day of Rising but that it will come into existence.’ ”
    Al-Muwatta 29 32.95b
    It’s okay to practice ‘azl when having sex with your slave-girl
    Narrated AbuSa’id al-Khudri: A man said: Apostle of Allah, I have a slave-girl and I withdraw the penis from her (while having intercourse), and I dislike that she becomes pregnant. I intend (by intercourse) what the men intend by it. The Jews say that withdrawing the penis (azl) is burying the living girls on a small scale. He (the Prophet) said: The Jews told a lie. If Allah intends to create it, you cannot turn it away.
    Abu Dawud 11:2166
    Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a man came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: I have a slave-girl who is our servant and she carries water for us and I have intercourse with her, but I do not want her to conceive. He said: Practise ‘azl, if you so like, but what is decreed for her will come to her. The person stayed back (for some time) and then came and said: The girl has become pregnant, whereupon he said: I told you what was decreed for her would come to her.
    Sahih Muslim 8:3383
    Your slave-girl is your field, so water it or leave it thirsty if you want
    Yahya related to me from Malik from Damra ibn Said al-Mazini from al-Hajjaj ibn Amr ibn Ghaziya that he was sitting with Zayd ibn Thabit when Ibn Fahd came to him. He was from the Yemen. He said, “Abu Said! I have slave-girls. None of the wives in my keep are more pleasing to me than them, and not all of them please me so much that I want a child by them, shall I then practise coitus interruptus?” Zayd ibn Thabit said, “Give an opinion, Hajjaj!” “I said, ‘May Allah forgive you! We sit with you in order to learn from you!’ He said, ‘Give an opinion! ‘I said, ‘She is your field, if you wish, water it, and if you wish, leave it thirsty. I heard that from Zayd.’ Zayd said, ‘He has spoken the truth.’ ”
    Al-Muwatta 29 32.99b
    “You don’t need your slave-girl’s permission to practice ‘azl with her.”
    Yahya related to me from Malik from Humayd ibn Qays al-Makki that a man called Dhafif said that Ibn Abbas was asked about coitus interruptus. He called a slave-girl of his and said, “Tell them.” She was embarrassed. He said, “It is alright, and I do it myself.” Malik said, “A man does not practise coitus interruptus with a free woman unless she gives her permission. There is no harm in practising coitus interruptus with a slave-girl without her permission. Someone who has someone else’s slave-girl as a wife, does not practise coitus interruptus with her unless her people give him permission.”
    Al-Muwatta 29 32.100b
    Additional Hadith about ‘azl
    Sahih Muslim
    Sa’d b. Abu Waqqas (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a person came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: I do ‘azi with my wife. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Why do you do that? The person said: I fear harm to her child or her children. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (way peace be upon him) said: If that were harmful it would harm the Persians and the Greeks.
    Sahih Muslim 8:3394
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: We took women captives, and we wanted to do ‘azl with them. We then asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) about it, and he said to us: Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it, but the soul which has to be born until the Day of judgment must be born.
    Sahih Muslim 8:3373
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) (was asked if he had heard it himself), to which he said: Yes. (I heard) Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: There is no harm if you do not practise it, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained (by Allah).
    Sahih Muslim 8:3374, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3375
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained. Muhammad (one of the narrators) said: (The words) La ‘alaykum (there is no harm) implies its Prohibition.
    Sahih Muslim 8:3376
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that mention was made of ‘azl in the presence of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) whereupon he said: Why do you practise it? They said: There is a man whose wife has to suckle the child, and if that person has a sexual intercourse with her (she may conceive) which he does not like, and there is another person who has a slave-girl and he has a sexual intercourse with her, but he does not like her to have conception so that she may not become Umm Walad, whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for that (the birth of the child) is something pre- ordained. Ibn ‘Aun said: I made a mention of this hadith to Hasan, and he said: By Allah, (it seems) as if there is upbraiding in it (for ‘azl).
    Sahih Muslim 8:3377, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3378 and Sahih Muslim 8:3379
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: Mention was made about al-‘azl in the presence of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), whereupon he said: Why any one of you practises it? (He did not say: One of you should not do it), for there is no created soul, whose creator is not Allah.
    Sahih Muslim 8:3380
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: The child does not come from all the liquid (sermen) and when Allah intends to create anything nothing can prevent it (from coming into existence).
    Sahih Muslim 8:3381, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3382
    Jabir b. ‘Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) reported that a person asked Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) saying: I have a slave-girl and I practise ‘azl with her, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: This cannot prevent that which Allah has decreed. The person then came (after some time) and said: Messenger of Allah, the slave-girl about whom I talked to you has conceived, whereupon Allah’s Messeuger (may peace be upon him) said: I am the servant of Allah and His Messenger.
    Sahih Muslim 8:3384
    Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu’n-Nadr, the mawla of Umar ibn Ubaydullah from Amir ibn Sad ibn Abi Waqqas from his father that he used to practise coitus interruptus.
    Al-Muwatta 29 32.96b
    Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu’n-Nadr, the mawla of Umar ibn Ubaydullah from Ibn Aflah, the mawla of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari from an umm walad of Abu Ayyubal-Ansari that he practised coitus interruptus.
    Al-Muwatta 29 32.97b
    Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar did not practise coitus interruptus and thought that it was disapproved.
    Al-Muwatta 29 32.98b
    Yahya said that Malik related from Ibn Shihab from Salim ibn Abdullah ibn Umar from his father that Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “What’s the matter with men who have intercourse with their slave-girls and then dismiss them? No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practised coitus interruptus or stopped having intercourse with her.”
    Al-Muwatta 36 23.24b
    Malik related to me from Nafi that Safiyya bint Abi Ubayd informed him that Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “What is the matter with men who have intercourse with their slave-girls and then leave them to go? No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practised coitus interruptus or left off from intercourse with her.” Yahya said that he heard Malik say, “What is done in our community about an umm walad who commits a crime is that her master is liable for what she has done up to her value. He does not have to surrender her, and he cannot be made to bear more than her value for her crime.”
    Al-Muwatta 36 23.25b


    “And let those who find not the financial means for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah enriches them of His bounty.” 24.33. This verse also clearly orders whoever does not have the financial means to marry to keep himself chaste and be patient in facing temptations (including masturbation) until Allah enriches them of His bounty.

    Secondly, from the sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him):

    Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood said, “We were with the Prophet while we were young and had no wealth whatsoever. So Allaah’s Messenger said, “O young people! Whoever among you can marry, should marry, because it helps him lower his gaze and guard his modesty (i.e. his private parts from committing illegal sexual intercourse etc.), and whoever is not able to marry, should fast, as fasting diminishes his sexual power.” Bukhari:5066. The hadeeth orders men who are not able to marry to fast despite the hardship encountered in doing so, and not to masturbate despite the ease with which it can be done.
    There are additional evidences that can be cited to support this ruling on masturbation, but due to the limited space we will not go through them here. Allaah knows what is best and most correct.

    As for curing the habit of masturbation, we recommend the following suggestions:

    (1) The motive to seek a cure for this problem should be solely following Allaah’s orders and fearing His punishment.

    (2) A permanent and quick cure from this problem lies in marriage as soon as the person is able, as shown in the Prophet’s hadeeth.

    (3) Keeping oneself busy with what is good for this world and the hereafter is essential in breaking this habit before it becomes second nature after which it is very difficult to rid oneself of it.

    (4) Lowering the gaze (from looking at forbidden things such as pictures, movies etc.) will help suppress the desire before it leads one to commit the haraam (forbidden). Allaah orders men and women to lower their gaze as shown in the following two verses and in the Prophet’s hadeeth (interpretations of the meanings):

    “Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is all-aware of what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) ….. ” 24.30-31
    Allaah’s messenger said: “Do not follow a casual (unintentional) look (at forbidden things) with another look.” Al-Tirmidhi 2777. This is a general instruction by the Prophet to abstain from all that may sexually excite a person because it might lead him/her to commit the haraam (forbidden).

    (5) Using one’s available leisure time in worshipping Allaah and increasing religious knowledge.

    (6) Being cautious not to develop any of the medical symptoms that may result from masturbation such as weak eyesight, weak nervous system, and/or back pain. More importantly, feeling of guilt and anxiety that can be complicated by missing obligatory prayers because of the need to shower (ghusl) after every incidence of masturbation.

    (7) Avoiding the illusion that some youth have that masturbation is permissible because it prevents them from committing illegal sexual acts such as fornication or even homosexuality.

    (8) Strengthening one’s willpower and avoiding spending time alone as recommended by the Prophet when he said “Do not spend the night alone” Ahmad 6919.

    (9) Following the Prophet’s aforementioned hadeeth and fast when possible, because fasting will temper one’s sexual desire and keep it under control. However, one should not overreact and swear by Allaah not to return to the act because if one does not honor one’s promise, one would be facing the consequences of not living up to one’s oath to Allaah. Also, note that medication to diminish one’s sexual desire is strictly prohibited because it might permanently affect one’s sexual ability.

    (10) Trying to follow the Prophet’s recommendation concerning the etiquette of getting ready for bed, such as reading well-known supplications, sleeping on the right side, and avoiding sleeping on the belly (the Prophet forbade sleeping on the belly).

    (11) Striving hard to be patient and chaste, because persistence will eventually, Allaah willing, lead to attaining those qualities as second nature, as the Prophet explains in the following hadeeth:
    “Whoever seeks chastity Allaah will make him chaste, and whoever seeks help from none but Allaah, He will help him, and whoever is patient He will make it easy for him, and no one has ever been given anything better than patience.” Bukhari:1469.

    (12) Repenting, asking forgiveness from Allaah, doing good deeds, and not losing hope and feeling despair are all prerequisites to curing this problem. Note that losing hope is one of the major sins punishable by Allaah.

    (13) Finally, Allaah is the Most Merciful and He always responds to whoever calls on Him. So, asking for Allah’s forgiveness will be accepted, by His will.
    Wallahu a’lam. And Allah knows what is best and most correct.

    Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

    Does masturbation at night in Ramadaan invalidate the fast?
    – 37673
    As some ulama say that fellation is makruh and some say Haraam, if someone did it during one night of Ramadhan, does it nullifies his fast of the previous day?.
    Praise be to Allaah.
    But the Muslim must strive to control himself and avoid doing this haraam action and others, especially during this blessed month.
    Whoever has been tested with this must repent to Allaah and regret what he has done, and resolve not to do it again.
    Masturbating without using the hands
    – 14587
    I receive questions from different people and I didn’t know how
    to answer this one:
    One young adult asked if masturbation was permissable. Not by doing it with hand but by stimulating oneself in different ways. Sheikh it is very embarrassing for me to ask you, i still can’t figure out how that young man did? So stimulating oneself without touching the private part itself. I don’t know how to answer this.
    Praise be to Allaah.
    Masturbation is haraam, as is indicated by the Qur’aan and Sunnah. See question no. 329.
    Masturbation does not necessarily mean using the hands. Whether it is done using the hand or not, or by touching the private part or not, it is still haraam. The scholars have stated this clearly, including Ibn ‘Aabideen in his commentary on al-Durr al-Mukhtaar. Some people may do that using a machine or dummy etc, which are known as “sex toys”. This is also not permitted. Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said that masturbation using the hands or otherwise is haraam according to the evidence of the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and sound opinion, etc. Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, ed. By Ashraf ‘Abd al-Maqsood, 2/931-932.
    Islam Q&A
    Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

    Pedophilia is legal in Islam.
    The law ordering pedophilia is in chapter 65, entitled ‘The Divorce’ and qualified by Islamic law, which is based on the sunnah, the ‘perfect example’ of Muhammad recorded in the hadiths, traditions. The context deals with the issue of the waiting period for divorce, and remarriage. The Quran orders Muslim men to wait a period of three months in the case of women who either are no longer menstruating or haven’t yet started their menstrual cycles.
    وَاللَّائِي يَئِسْنَ مِنَ الْمَحِيضِ مِن نِّسَائِكُمْ إِنِ ارْتَبْتُمْ فَعِدَّتُهُنَّ ثَلَاثَةُ أَشْهُرٍ وَاللَّائِي لَمْ يَحِضْنَ وَأُوْلَاتُ الْأَحْمَالِ أَجَلُهُنَّ أَن يَضَعْنَ حَمْلَهُنَّ وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ يُسْرًا
    (4. Those in menopause among your women, for them the `Iddah, if you have doubt, is three months; AND FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NO MENSTRUATION. And for those who are pregnant, their `Iddah is until they lay down their burden; and whosoever has Taqwa of Allah, He will make his matter easy for him.)
    (5. That is the command of Allah, which He has sent down to you; and whosoever has Taqwa [fear] of Allah, He will expiate from him his sins, and will increase his reward.) Qur’an chapter 65:4
    Islamic law is based on the rules of the Qur’an and the sunnah, the ‘perfect example’ of Muhammad, the Muslim prophet, recorded in the hadiths, traditions. All Muslims are ordered to imitate Muhammad’s ‘perfect example’ in thought, word and deed. They are ordered to regard Muhammad as the ideal human being and Islam as the best system for humanity forever, a system that Islamic law orders must rule the world and abolish all other religions, cultures and laws.
    The definition of the word consummate: In Sahih Bukhari, vol. 7, #64, the root word used is dakhala. Hans-Wehr Arabic-English Dictionary p273: it means ‘to enter, to pierce, to penetrate, to consummate, cohabit, to have sex with a female’.
    Question #22442: The ruling on marrying young girls
    Question #12708: Is it acceptable to marry a girl who has not yet started her menses?
    Answer: Marriage to a young girl before she reaches puberty is permissible according to sharee’ah, and it was narrated that there was scholarly consensus on this point.
    1 – Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
    “And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘Iddah (prescribed period), if you have doubt (about their periods), is three months; and for those who have no courses [(i.e. they are still immature) their ‘Iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise” [al-Talaaq 65:4]
    In this verse we see that Allaah states that for those who do not menstruate – because they are young and have not yet reached the age of puberty – the ‘iddah in the case of divorce is three months. This clearly indicates that it is permissible for a young girl who has not started her periods to marry.
    Question #27305: Is it permissible to marry a thirteen year old girl?
    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) when she was six years old, and he consummated the marriage with her when she was nine, and at that time he was over fifty.
    Al-Bukhaari (3894) and Muslim (1422) narrated that ‘Aa’ishah said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married me when I was six years old and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine.
    It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her when she was six years old, he consummated the marriage with her when she was nine and she stayed with him for nine years.
    If she has not reached the age of puberty, then her father has the sole right to arrange her marriage and does not have to ask her permission. With regard to the wedding-party of a young married girl at the time of consummating the marriage, if the husband and the guardian of the girl agree upon something that will not cause harm to the young girl, then that may be done. If they disagree, then Ahmad and Abu ‘Ubayd say that once a girl reaches the age of nine then the marriage may be consummated even without her consent, but that does not apply in the case of who is younger.There is nothing in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah to set an age limit or to forbid that in the case of a girl who is able for it before the age of nine.
    Question #8981: What is the punishment for a girl found guilty of adultery if she has not even reached her puberty – she is still a minor?
    Answer: Al-Qurtubi said: The followers of all religions are agreed that adultery is forbidden; no religion regards it as permissible. Hence the punishment for it is one of the most severe punishments, because it is a crime against honour and lineage, which is one of the five basic principles that Islam seeks to protect, namely life, religion, lineage, reason and wealth.
    Tafseer al-Qurtubi, 24/20, 21
    1 – If a woman has been previously married i.e., a legitimate marriage with her has been consummated, then her punishment is to be stoned to death.
    2 – If the woman is a virgin i.e., she is not married yet or the marriage contract has been done but her husband has not yet consummated the marriage with her – then the punishment is one hundred lashes and exile from her country for a year. If the adulterer or adulteress is a minor below the age of puberty, then there is no punishment to be carried out, according to all scholars.
    Question 1809
    After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwahs (religious decrees) reviewed the question forwarded by the grand scholar of the committee with reference number 1809 issued on 3/5/1453 and 7/5/1421 (Islamic calendar)
    Question: ‘It has become widespread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufa’khathat of the children. (mufa’khathat – literally translated, it means “placing between the thighs” which means placing the male member between the thighs of a child) What is the opinion of scholars, knowing full well that the prophet, the peace of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers – may Allah be pleased with her.’
    Answer: After studying the issue, the committee has answered as follows:
    As for the prophet, thighing his fiancée Aisha when she was six years of age and not able to consummate the relationship due to her small age. That is why the Prophet used to place his male member between her thighs and massage it, as the prophet had control of his male member not like other men.
    Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, The Supreme Leader of Iran, the Shia Grand Ayatollah, 1979-89 said in his official statements:
    “A man can quench his sexual lusts with a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate. Sodomizing the baby is halal (allowed by sharia). If the man penetrates and damages the child, then he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl, however, does not count as one of his four permanent wives. The man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister. It is better for a girl to marry when her menstruation starts, and at her husband’s house rather than her father’s home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.”
    Khomeini, “Tahrirolvasyleh” fourth volume, Darol Elm, Gom, Iran, 1990
    “It is not illegal for an adult male to ‘thigh’ or enjoy a young girl who is still in the age of weaning; meaning to place his penis between her thighs, and to kiss her.”
    Ayatu Allah Al Khumaini’s “Tahrir Al wasila” p. 241, issue number 12
    “Young boys or girls in full sexual effervescence are kept from getting married before they reach the legal age of majority. This is against the intention of divine laws. Why should the marriage of pubescent girls and boys be forbidden because they are still minors, when they are allowed to listen to the radio and to sexually arousing music?”
    “The Little Green Book” “Sayings of the Ayatollah Khomeini”, Bantam Books
    If there are no children available, an animal will do:
    A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm. He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village; however, selling the meat to the next door village should be fine.
    Khomeini’s book, “Tahrirolvasyleh” fourth volume, Darol Elm, Gom, Iran, 1990
    “If one commits the act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrement become impure, and even their milk may no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed and as quickly as possible and burned.”

    On Eating and Drinking

    There are eighteen principles to be observed at mealtime; washing one’s hands before the meal; washing and drying one’s hands after the meal; the head of the house beginning eating before any of his guests and finishing after them; he must wash his hands before the meal ahead of the others, and be followed by the person who sits at his right, and then the next, and so on, until reaching the one seated at his left; beginning the meal by invoking the name of Allah; but if several courses are served, it is recommended that this be repeated before each course; taking with one’s right hand; eating with three fingers, leaving the other two free; taking small quantities of food in each mouthful; stretching the meal out as long as possible; chewing one’s food at length; praising Allah at the end of the meal; licking one’s fingers; cleaning one’s teeth after the meal with a toothpick, which must not be made of pomegranate wood, basil wood, reed, or palm leaves; gathering up the remains of the meal in order to eat them later, but if the meal is eaten in the desert it is better to leave such remains for the birds and animals; eating at the beginning of the day and at nightfall, and abstaining there from during the day and during the night; resting on one’s back after eating, and putting the right leg over the left; taking salt at the beginning and the end of the meal; washing all fruit before it.

    There are eleven things to be avoided during meals; eating when one is not hungry; eating too much, which is frowned upon by the Almighty; watching others while eating; eating things that are too hot; blowing on a dish or into a glass to cool the food or drink;
    starting to eat as soon as the bread has been put on the table; cutting bread with a knife; putting bread under one’s plate; cleaning a meat bone so there is nothing left on it; peeling fruit; throwing away half-eaten fruit.

    There are six principles to be observed while drinking water: sucking it up rather than gulping it down; drinking upright invoking the name of Allah before and after drinking; drinking in three steps; drinking of one’s own free will; recalling the martyrdom of Hazrat Abu Abdullah and his family, and cursing their murderers, after drinking.

    There are five things to be avoided during the absorption of water: drinking to excess; drinking after a heavy meal; drinking standing up during the night; taking the water jug in one’s left hand; drinking from a place where the jug is chipped or broken or at the location of the handle.

    Among the organs of fowl, game, domestic animals, fish, and so on whose flesh of you are permitted to eat, there are fifteen which are proscribed: blood; excrement; the penis; the vagina; the uterus; the glands; the testicles; the central part of the brain; the little chickpea shaped ball at the back side of the brain; the nerves located on either side of the spinal column; the gallbladder; the liver; the bladder; the eye; matter accumulated under the claws.

    It is forbidden to consume the excrement of animals or their nasal secretions. But if such are mixed in minute proportions into other foods their consumption is not forbidden.
    The meat of horses, mules, or donkeys is not recommended. It is strictly forbidden if the animal was sodomized while alive by a man.

    In that case, the animal must be taken outside the city and sold.
    If one commits an act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrements become impure, and even their milk may no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed as quickly as possible and burned, and the price of it paid to its owner by him who sodomized it.

    Drinking wine or alcoholic beverages is a mortal sin, and is strictly forbidden. Whoever consumes an alcoholic beverage retains only a part of his soul, that part of it which is deformed and nasty; he is damned by Allah, His archangels, His prophets, and His believers.

    Such a man’s daily prayers are rejected by Allah for forty days. On the day of the resurrection of the dead, his face will turn black, his tongue will hang out of his mouth, his saliva will run down his chest, and he will remain forever thirsty.
